UFC on Fox Results: Junior Dos Santos Confirms Torn Meniscus Leading To Title Fight

As if winning the UFC heavyweight title in 64 seconds wasn't impressive enough, Junior Dos Santos did it all with a busted up knee. Ariel Helwani of MMA Fighting confirmed the news via twitter that the new champion went into the fight with a major knee injury. 

JDS and his dr. just confirmed that he tore his meniscus 11 days ago, was on crutches for 2 days after. Couldn't walk.

My play by play of the fight:

Round 1: HERE WE GO! The energy is insane. Cain lands a leg kick. Right hand from JDS. Junior tries a front kick and is nearly taken down. Body punch from Dos Santos. Cain looking to attack the lead leg. HOLY CRAP! Junior lands a ridiculous overhand that drops Cain. Junior swarms and lands several punches. Cain looked out and Big John steps in and stops the fight. 

Official Result: Junior Dos Santos via Knockout at 1:04

Junior Dos Santos is the new UFC heavyweight champion, dethroning Cain Velasquez with his monstrous power. He'll defend his belt against the winner of Brock Lesnar and Alistair Overeem later in 2012.
